Discussion: Islam & Liberalism

The first installment of the MSA Discussion Series is here! This Tuesday, we will be discussing modern liberalism and its compatibility with Islam. Oftentimes young Muslims in the West find themselves confused about what their attitude should be towards Western liberalism. In particular, Muslims who have immigrated to the West tend to come from more conservative societies. Are these societies more conservative because of the Islamic principles they uphold or due to cultural or socioeconomic reasons? Does Islam need to be reformed to adhere to principles of modern liberalism? Is liberalism harming Islam or are we benefitting from it? These are some of the questions we hope we can tackle at Tuesday’s discussion. All views are welcome as long as they are expressed in a respectful way. We would love to hear what you have to say and we cannot wait to see you all on Tuesday In Shaa Allah!!
